Those damned parties

What's Mallard raving about today?

Kentucky, New Year's Eve.

I'm sure Mallard is as shocked as every one of us that he's received an invitation to a party. But that does not excuse telling someone you are (or will be) sitting at home in your pajamas. That is just creepy by any measure.

Oh snap, the Music City Bowl? Boy, I sure feel sorry for those teams in the National Championship Game, missing out on such an honor!

What a moron. Ignoring all chances to have fun in order to worship a mediocre football team. And again with the "Wooo..."

I plan on watching the Law and Order marathon on TNT - 32 hours.

I'm not a social person, so I don't get invited to parties, and I don't like them.

But I know I'm the oddball.

DAMMIT - why do I have to (kinda) identify with Mallard? :( :(

Who would invite a cranky duck to a party, if not to get him drunk and blackmail him later?

Kaitlyn said...

I am more social than Mallard! W00t!

The L&O marathon starts at 11am, but Becky (my sis) invited me to lunch whenever she's awake (not before 11 with no school).

I said yes.

My priorities are just fine!

"Huh? What party? It's New Years' Eve? A party on New Years' Eve? ...What? You say I'm a talking duck? I'm talking on a phone???"

Oy.

Tinny's found a new and improved way to show us all how completely out-of-touch and flaked-out upstairs is Mallard (and Tinny himself).

"I'll be sitting at home in my footy-PJs, amongst all the piles of trash and filth, watching an inconsequential sports non-event and stuffing my topside-arsehole with generic-brand junk food. If I want human companionship, I'll invite a little boy to come roll around on my floor!"

Kaitlyn's right--who would invite this dork? "We need a really arrogant ass of a guest who's a closet bigot and pervert and yet won't disguise his complete and utter contempt for all of us and our beliefs! I know, let's call that disgusting duck!"

(Still, you're not the only one who avoids parties, Kaitlyn. Bellowing and vomiting isn't fun for me either. I'm coming home from work and hitting the sack.)

Now, bellowing while vomiting... wait...

You know, I don't really follow football -- is there actually a game that occurs at midnight on the 31st? That's when I'd imagine this party being.

I think he was invited for his entertainment value. Get him loaded (not hard) then yell "Hillary!".

Out of curiosity, anyone ever heard of these guys: www.gocomics.com/chuckasay and www.gocomics.com/glennmccoy

he's so conservative, it would make Mallard weep.

The Music City Bowl starts at 4:00 p.m. So whatever party Mallard was invited to must end about 8:00.

Kaitlyn said...

Billywitchdoctor, I'm glad I'm not the only one!

The only place I've ever gone on NYE is a relative's house in the adjacent fireworks-friendly county. To light fireworks, of course.

But this comic is odd. Okay, Mallard likes football on tv more than the company of other people/creatures. Fine.

But who knows him well enough to invite him, but not well enough to know he's not a party animal?

Kaitlyn said...

Today's Mallard is worse than the random Pluggers that applies to me.

Yes, I'm in my PJs.

Yes, I'd forsake a party for TV.

No, I probably wouldn't be invited.

If I were, I wouldn't tell the whole truth - just, hey, no, parties aren't my thing, hope your party's great.

I may be an introvert, but at least I'm nice. They cared enough to invite me to a party, the least I can do is be polite.

exanonymous said...

Didn't Mallard just make snarky comments about parents plopping children down in front of the TV?

And yet here he is. Blobbing as usual, with a box of something.

This NYE I won't be doing anything. It beats getting drunk.

Kaitlyn said...

Ah, ex - he plopped himself in front of the TV.

The kiddies are forced to watch TV.

No child would watch TV willingly.

Rush doesn't - he makes dust angels while the duck turns into an eggplant.
